Level Fellowship Announcement

We are excited to announce details about our high school fellowship program! Fifteen high school students from the Chicagoland area will be able to partake in an amazing, one-of-kind experience. Over the course of the 6-week fellowship, the following questions will be explored.

  • What is social justice and what does it mean to you?
  • What can you do to raise awareness about issues that are important to you?
  • How can you use art to become a leader in social advocacy?

We will examine these questions by considering social justice from a religious and historical lens, while making connections to inequities that persist today. With the support of social justice professionals and organizations, themes such as gender and economic inequity, immigration rights, and racial and religious discrimination will be explored. This course will stress the importance of education to inform knowledgeable opinions on social issues. Analysis of personal experiences and stories from religious text will segue into identifying how art can empower us to bring light to inequities and energize social response.

Those who complete the fellowship will receive a $500 scholarship and a certificate of completion from our partners. Once all details are finalized, the application and further information can be found here.
